PlayStation Vita vs Nintendo 3DS

This is a comparison of the 3DS and Vita. It has specs comparison at the bottom. You may be surprised that both systems have alot going for them...
The specs are fact but the rest is opinionated so calm down.


I've rewritten The article and update the facts Sony boys wanted me to add. Also I've looked at it more closely at the grammar since that was obviously a huge thing-Not.

I chose the 3DS because of pokemon and mario. I play enough big sony titles on my PS3, so no need to go out and buy a vita, really.

zeeshan2599d ago (Edited 2599d ago )

I will take the one that lets play multiplayer games on the go. Also with improved graphics and lots of quality games on it. That my friends means Vita.

buddymagoo2599d ago (Edited 2599d ago )

PSV will have Fifa and Call of Duty. Those will be big hitters with the casual gamer. Me personally I can't wait to see what Fifa is going to play like when I'm out and about setting up random matches. I'll be walking about on the hunt for Fifa players to devour, I'm so excited!

StarWolf2599d ago

sorry bud, you aint playing online multiplayer on the go. Stop dreaming. You aint playing COD on 3g, frikin LOL.

I have the 3ds and the Vita is going to banish it to hell. I will get a Vita but not to play online games on the go, which they said it WONT do unless its small like leaderboards or maybe a card game lol.

StbI9902599d ago (Edited 2599d ago )

Or 4G, hey the Xperia got a 4G version, a vita's is bound to come.

And for the 3DS guy? I choose the 3DS with two analogs and a lite version, so yeah, Vita > Actual 3DS until new revision... obvious N-bot.

DS = 3DS
PS3 with upgrades = PS Vita

Better gameplay, more multimedia, better garhpic, multiplayer.... so many things... > 3DS

Kee2599d ago

I can understand why the Vita is impressive, but the great graphical experiences like uncharted should be kept on your big-ass TV, in my opinion.

yabhero2599d ago

I hate when ppl say that. It obviously means they've never seen a 3DS. DS= handheld N64
3DS= handheld Wii
I love both systems but according to specs, the 3DS is the one who equals an upgraded wii and the vita isa slightly DOWNgraded pS3. there is no question PS3 graphics and better than Vitas.

MaxXAttaxX2599d ago

That would make sense if games like Uncharted on the Vita were console ports. But they're actually designed for the Vita.

This guy is full of $hit. At the beginning of the article he said that he didn't own neither of them, then while talking about battery life he said that he owns a 3DS lol

DarkCharizard_2599d ago (Edited 2599d ago )

As for games of my personal preference, its absolutely a no contest.

1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
2. Kid Icarus Uprising
3. Super Mario 3D Land
4. Mario Kart 7
5. Star Fox 64 3D
6. Metal Gear Solid: The Snake Eater 3D
7. Resident Evil Revalations
8. Tekken 3D
9. Dead or Alive Dimensions
10.Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition
11.Luigi's Mansion 2
12.Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked
13.Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance
14.Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle
15.Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney
16.Paper Mario 3DS
17.Bit. Trip SAGA
18.Animal Crossing 3DS
19.Castlevania 3DS
20.Monster Hunter Tri G
21.Fire Emblem 3DS
22.Sonic Generations

This is ofcourse, going to be my future collection. Nintendo really launched 3DS in a disappointing fashion and the console has just about started to pick up the pace since last month.

I hope PSVz launch is better... I'm looking forward to some of the games like Uncharted, Wipeout, Street Fighter X Tekken, Assassin's Creed, Modnation Racers, Bioshock and Monster Hunter but there are just not enough announcements yet. Hope we get a great showing at TGS!

"plus two screen advantage"


I prefer bigger, batter, OLED screen than two small LCD screens.

MaxXAttaxX2599d ago (Edited 2599d ago )

3D? Really?
The PS Vita's resolution is higher than both of the 3DS screens combined!
Advantage? LOL

Nice list of re-releases, ports, multiplats. Only about 7 or 8 are new games.

3DS is nearly 7 months into the market and the Vita is doing more than good enough keeping up with great titles and it's not even released yet. Titles should be more than double by the time it's 7 months into the market unlike 3DS now.

NESpower2599d ago

Vita doesn't have a list half as good.

cpayne932599d ago

Vita isn't out yet. And it has a very good list of games coming.

Jio2599d ago

Actually, it already has a pretty stelar lineup of AAA games, as well as indie developers pledging their alliance. What I hate about Nintendo is that they keep using the same franchises for years, the 3DS games are the same as the DS while the PS Vita has and will have new IP's

"who wins, I dont know"

Thats the smartest point in the article.

CloseSecond2599d ago

Its great that consumers have choice and are able to buy the device that best supports the software they want and their lifestyle.

fei-hung2599d ago

The Vita. 3DS's 3D is weak since it doesn't really pop out at u but just sits a little over the screen. looks more like some kind of fuzzy special effect as supposed to a 3D image.

To make matters worse, the only games that are looking good are the remakes from 10years ago being re-launched at full price. I can't figure out how Nintendo has got it so wrong :S

With the amount of connectivity, games lined up, functionality, services and cool new augemented reality games, the Vita wins hands down IMO. Especially for those who have PSN and PSN+. they will be able to upload tons of games from their accounts for free.

Pikajew2599d ago

If you hate remake you should hate Sony for making so much remakes of games.

Tiqila2599d ago

didnt he say something like

"the only games that are looking good are the remakes from 10yrs ago..."?

can you please give a hint where you think you've read that fei-hung hates remakes?

@topic: its vita for me, 3ds maybe later, but theres not many awesome NEW games and from most of the remakes i owe the original.

playing zelda: oot on n64 is infinitely better than on 3ds (for me that is)

fei-hung2599d ago

As Tiqila below said, I don't hate remakes, it's just that the majority of of games that are of interest to me are remakes.

The Nintendo DS wasn't like this. It had a lots of new original titles along with additions to franchises. It just offered a hell of a lot more than its predecossor did.

Each to their own. Last gen, I wasn't really excited about the PSP as I was excited about the DS. This time around it's the other way around. If you see more value in a 3DS, then I am happy for you. As a gamer, as long as you get what you want, then there should be no reason to complain.

digitaledge2599d ago

Some aspects of the 3DS' 3D actually come out at you. Most of the effect is popping in, but in certain parts of Zelda 3D, for example, some things appear as they are coming out (snow in Zora's Domain is one, and the fairy-like circles that float around the Kokiri village is another)

yabhero2599d ago

I did a science project on 3D. 3d doesnt really pop out a you. I dont know why ppl think that. when your walking around in everyday life do things pop out at you, no. the 3ds is like looking in a little world which is really cool. Not to mention a ton of really awesome games that are not remakes for 3ds come out in the months b4 vitas even released. Not to mnetion the price cut.

roshi19872599d ago (Edited 2599d ago )

Yabhero, I think you failed your science project on account of your atrocious grammar. Also, no one said anything about "real life." The weak 3ds 3D is weak.

Venox20082599d ago

If you haven't seen that some stuff really is popping out of screen, that doesn't mean it doesn't at all.. there are stuff that really does pop up in 3DS.. I have 3DS and I know that
